to harry reid. bill: that is cab fare, by the way. steve hayes, senior writer, "weekly standard." fox news contributor. good morning to you. >> good morning bill. >> president is on the road. no meetings to talk about this between senate leaders and house leaders. no meetings with the administration. friday there is no session on the schedule for congress. >> right. what's different about this one is that in the past, the fiscal cliff, these other things you at least staff to staff contact and negotiations and ongoing discussions, sort of largely out of public view. that even is not happening in this scenario. i think we're likely to see the sequester come march first and see how it plays out the next month. bill: if it comes, this deadline is little different from what we've seen in the past, steve. >> right. bill: this is gradual. make it works its way into the system a little bit at a time during the month of march. for sure during april. >> right. bill: it seems to have a different feel. there is not the urgency there. >> it does. this is where the white house is having, creating some

things coming out of harry reid. what about the assault weapon ban and the likelihood of that or is your focus more on handgun control and the gun trafficking bill? >> our focus here is the gun trafficking bill. and let me tell you why. i'm a strong supporter of the other provisions that you just talked about. machine guns and assault weapons and clips, high capacity clips. but this is something that we've gotten republicans to agree with us on. in other words, this is the first time in a long time in the house where we've got co-sponsorship with republicans. and we had two yesterday and now we've added another three. and we expect that before it's all over, we'll have quite a few folks on both sides of the aisle and we'll have a bipartisan bill. another thing that's significant about this. you spent a lot of time looking at "fast and furious." during the "fast and furious" hearings, the atf officers who came to testify before us basically begged us to create a drug trafficking law. because basically what they were saying is that it was almost impossible for them to get convictions of th

was serious, he would sit down with harry reid and begin to address our problems. the house has acted twice. we should not have to act the third time before the senate begins to do their work. guest: speaker boehner was the chairman of the education committee when i sat on there when i first came to the congress. he is usually a very reasonable person. i think some of that was a little bit of politics. i do not seek the president using our armed men and women as props. certainly, i think there is some gamesmanship going on by both sides the bottom line is -- and both sides could the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start to make smart cuts -- both sides. the bottom line is, speaker boehner, there are many people that want to be at the table with you and want to start making smart cuts. if we need to save defense, if we cannot cut deeply to defense, then sit down with us and decide how much from defense is really fat and waste right now, and let's figure out how we make up the rest of that money. that is called a new rev

speaker boehner, senate democratic leader harry reid, and nancy pelosi, the house democratic leader, will attend the meeting on friday at the white house. on c-span we have been talking to capitol hill reporters about the potential impact of the sequester. here's a look at how it might be affecting the education department. >> joining us now from domination week is reporter allison klein, she's on the phone to talk about what she's education cuts could mean. good morning. we heard the education secretary call them dumb cuts. what the republicans calling the potential cuts to education? >> that's funny. they have been pretty quiet about that. i think it's a losing issue to come out and say we really want to make sure we cut programs like title 1, disadvantaged students, head start programs like that. so they have been fairly quiet when it comes to the education cuts and sequestration. >> let's look at some of the specifics, the white house is warning about a 8.2% across-the-board for most education programs. what else are we seeing? >> actually with the s.s.i. .3% cut because of some
